Bringing problem solvers to the world
The Discipline of Integrative Thinking
Real-time problem solving for the real world
Solving complex problems requires the ability to synthesize and engage different perspectives, stepping outside of a particular viewpoint to achieve superior outcomes. Integrative Thinking invites you to hone your thinking to reach revolutionary new ideas.
Integrative Thinking is a discipline and methodology for framing and solving real-world problems, and it's the basis of the new pedagogy embraced at the Rotman School. In an increasingly complex world, achieving successful business solutions using the old “tried and true” methods is becoming ineffective. By learning to think in the abstract—purviewing the scope while taking in every detail—one breaks through traditional models of thinking to achieve extraordinary outcomes.
Integrative Thinking is an open source method for framing and solving real-world problems, that comes with a unique set of tools to help you thrive in a multi-faceted world.
